God has a purpose for our lives. That’s the truth but what
does that really mean? Yes, God has a plan for you, for me but
how does that apply to our lives? How does that apply to us now?
God showed me something the other day about purpose.
God has a plan for me but what I do daily has an impact on my
Am I being faithful with what is in my hand at this moment in
I realized God was looking at what I was doing now!
This blog is something God has
put in my hands (a talent) and He is looking on to see
if I will make a profit or if I will hide it in the ground!!!!
Do you get it?
What about my purity?
God has given me this precious gift and is also looking to see
what I do with it. Do I cherish it or do I disgard it? It matters!
God wants me to be faithful with the finances He has given me.
Do I save, do I invest? Do I plan how I use the money I have?
Do I give to the poor? Do I tithe?
In the big picture, the way I use my finances matter!
Over the years He has shown me how important it is to
exercise and eat healthy. Am I looking after my temple
by exercising regularly and eating right?
I could go on and on but I believe you get the idea. Walking
in purpose means doing the small things He has put in our
hands. He has given you talents and is looking to see if you
will be faithful with them.
Remember the story in the book of Matthew25:14-30
To one He gave five talents, to another He gave two talents and
to the last servant He gave one talent.
They were given a different amount of talents but what mattered
is if they went and did something with the talents they were given!
You may be complaining about the one talent you have been given
but are you being faithful with that one talent??
I was so convicted when I realized God wanted me to be faithful
with the one talent He had given me! Sitting on it or burying it
because it was a talent was not going to cut it.
Walking in your purpose means being faithful with the one, two
five talents you have been given.
I would like to leave you with this thought friends.
God has given some of you five talents, some two talents and
some just one talent but when you are faithful with what He
has given you, He will give you more! If you are that person who
has one talent, be faithful with it. He knows what He is doing!
He is so good!

Reblogged this on Real About Life and commented:
Trading your talents to fulfill purpose
I appreciate the reblog. Thank you!
I was blessed but and others too
It was timely for me. Most often people mystify purpose and you just confirmed again and put it straight and simple as it is
Glad to hear that. It was a good reminder to me that there are things I need to be doing now. And yes, purpose is out there and big but there is work now and God is using those things to get me to the place He wants me to be! Bless you….
So true, so much work now while moving towards the big picture. stay blessed

This has struck me straight to the heart Rolain! Thanks for the reminder!
We all have the tendency to complain with how little we get. I believe that this one of the ways we are being tested for our faithfulness. I have to remind myself to be thankful always and make the most of what He has given me.
You welcome Jayson.
God is looking at how faithful we are indeed. May we always remember to make the most of the whatever talents He has given us….Happy Easter brother!
